Eight of Pentacles

eight of pentacles

Keywords:  apprentice, skill, hard work, productive, workaholic

General meaning:  The Eight of Pentacles is all about working hard and enjoying it.  It’s also the card of apprenticeship.  When this card shows up in your reading, you may be engaged in learning new skills or working your tail end off.  Although this is all about hard work, there is satisfaction.  Prolific.  Rewards for a job well done.  Creating a major body of work.  Happily employed.  Continuous effort.  Grindin’.  Focused on the job at hand.

Reversed:  Slacking off.  Taking the easy route.  Sloppy workmanship. Learning issues.  Little effort.  A half-assed effort at best.  A lack of ambition.  Here, the energy becomes disinterested, frustrated, and lazy.  Repair work.  Fixing someone else’s shoddy work.  Poor skills.  Getting hung up on details and getting nothing accomplished.

Affirmation: I love my work.

Theme song: “Whistle While You Work” by the Seven Dwarves

Journaling prompt:  How do you feel about your current line of work?  Do you ever get lost in your tasks?  What do you do to continue to hone your skills?

Rap:

Getting lost in yo work
Put your back into it
Honing your grind
There’s no lack to it
Moving and shaking
Getting all specific
Building and baking
You be getting prolific.

Blessings,
Theresa
